That is what I did last weekend. I was meaning to go to Altınoluk for some time, but could never arrange a date that would fit everyone. The weekend was the perfect timing.
Altınoluk is a small town of Balıkesir. It has the Mountain of Ida (Kaz Dağı) on the North and the Egean Sea (Edremit Bay) to the South. It is famous for its olives and olive oil. The doctors advice people with heart conditions to live there for the level of oxygen is very high.
My ex-flatmate (she hates me when I call her like that) happens to have a summer house there in a beautiful location, just a street away from the sea and the beach. So you can image the weekend I spent in the beach and the deep, clean sea (and it was deep).
One of the best things was the food we had in the beach, especially the mussels, oh I love it, with lots of lemon juice... Aaagh.... I even went to a wedding in the big garden of a resort!
All in all the weekend was worth doing it, although I had to go to work as soon as I arrived on Monday morning, I was really energized and ready to go even to my surprise!
